    I have the same kit as the OP (on a Formula VII) with a additional XTX360 and XTX240 in the loop...... just waiting on the 980 KPE blocks to come out for my SLI to added in.

    I want to add a aquarium chiller to run the coolant at a constant ambient, I'm hoping for over 5.0 out of my 4790k.

    This is a GREAT thread and very nicely done!

    I will say this. IF you do more than one radiator you might want to look at elbows to make routing cleaner and ........ I had not one single drop of water leak from anywhere and the only tool used was the allen for the plugs to snug them down. Everything else was hand tightened.

    Great write up Chino, I just finished upgrading to an EK X360 Kit as well and I am very pleased with the results. Coming from a Corsair H110 the difference has been very noticeable. Especially when running benchmarks and playing games. The quality of the kit is quite fantastic as well, the instructions clear and concise, just screams quality.

    This was the first time I setup a custom loop and I had a lot of fun.

    Here are some pictures of the build as I went along:

    5960x and x360 temps

    hey chino ,
    first of all congrats on the monster build, 4.4ghz on 8 cores is just a dream.

    if u would be as so kind to give ur idle temps & load temps for the cpu package & the cores if possible.
    temps u provide will help me pull the trigger or avoid the x360.

    my stock 5960x hits 42*c playing fallout4 on hwinfo but doesnt go above 32*c on the ROG oc panel.
    u have my thanks in advance

    Hello Nemisishunter,

    The EK Kit X360 is a very effective option indeed. It will keep your CPU cool and silent. EKWB have updated their X360 and they are now including their new EK-Vardar fans with the kit. So you're in luck.

    Currently I'm using the R5E Monoblock instead of the EK-Supremacy EVO CPU block that is included with the X360. At stock speed, the difference between the two is around 11C at full load. So just take that into consideration and add 11C to the maximum readings that you see in the screenshot. For your reference, ambient temperature is 26C.
